I enjoy getting to know my students and weaving their personal interests into the maths lessons so as to engage them. Many students complain about maths being boring that's why humour and frequent praise are indispensable tools I use in my teaching as well as setting clearly articulated learning outcomes and high expectations. My lessons often use a list of 'success criteria', 'model answers' and self and teacher evaluation of strengths and weaknesses. I encourage reflection and independent thought through targeted questioning and scaffolding of the learning so as to allow my students to reach their 'self discovery' moment (which is always very exciting.
My name is Peace, I am a graduate of Biological Science from Nnamdi Azikiwe University. I also have a Post Graduate Diploma in Education( PGDE) in Integrated Science from the National Teachers' Institute Kaduna.
I have had over eight (8) years teaching experience as a school teacher and a home tutor, teaching both Primary and Secondary School Students. Where I teach Biology, Basic Science and Mathematics. I have successfully prepared students for both the Junior and Senior Schools Certificate Examinations in these subjects who performed very well.
I have a naturally positive rapport with my students that helps me to engage and manage lessons effectively. I am enthusiastic, approachable and dedicated, and I present myself and run my classes in a professional and energetic fashion. I understand the pressures students can feel when preparing for exams, and whether the student needs motivating or is already very keen, depending on age and level of study I always try to find something within the subject to spark the students' imagination and fire their enthusiasm for the topic or subject.

Before any class, I create a detailed lesson plan, detailing what is expected to be achieved for that class in a way that it maximizes the time frame allocated to the class. My class session is always engaging and this makes the student free with me to ask questions. At the end of each class, after I must have ensured that the goal for that day is achieved, I give out assignments. This keeps the student occupied and the topic taught for that day remains fresh in the student's memory.
